Wisconsin couples will probably agree that divorce can devastate a child. In the best interests of the child, it is better for divorcing couples to maintain a harmonious relationship and avoid any potential conflict. Normally, the child lives with one parent and child support is paid by the other. A child support order can be modified only if there has been a significant change in circumstances.
However, before the child support order is modified, the court will review it. The court will ask for financial information from the child's parents. After the review, the court order can be modified, and as a result, the child support may increase or decrease, depending on the situation.
